Stun gun used in road rage incident

Deputies: Man shot in chest

A 21-year-old Madison man used a stun gun on another driver in a road rage incident, according to a release from the Dane County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said a 29-year-old Madison man was having tire problems when he pulled into the PDQ parking lot on Milwaukee Street with his fiancee and daughter at 10:15 p.m. on Saturday.

James V.B. York, of Madison, was speeding out of the same parking lot and nearly hit the victim’s vehicle, according to the release.

Both drivers stopped and were exchanging words when York pulled out a stun gun and shot the other driver in the chest, deputies said. The man was able to get the license plate number off York’s car before he left the scene.

Deputies said they later found York and arrested him on suspicion of causing injury by negligent handling of a dangerous weapon, endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, possession of an electronic weapon, battery and disorderly conduct while armed.
